Brie Larson Recalled Her First Meeting With An Elephant To Draw Inspiration For Kong


Brie Larson

Fantasy movies that rely a lot on CGI aren't always easy for actors to get to grips with, especially if there's nothing they can bounce their emotions off of. It was a similar thing for Brie Larson with 'Kong: Skull Island', but she had a real life experience from which to draw her on-screen fear.

Kong: Skull IslandBrie Larson stars in 'Kong: Skull Island'

In reference to Brie's character Mason's reaction when she first lays eyes on the colossal Kong in the film (a creature which the actress insists is 'five times bigger' than he's ever been before: 'He's absolutely massive!'), she reveals that she drew inspiration from her first meeting with an Indian elephant.

Brie Larson Says Not Applauding Casey Affleck At The Oscars "Spoke For Itself"


Brie Larson Casey Affleck

Brie Larson has spoken for the first time about her much-discussed decision not to applaud Casey Affleck as she handed him his Oscar for Best Actor at the Academy Awards last month, saying that it “spoke for itself”.

Back at the 89th Oscars, many noticed that the 27 year old star remained conspicuously still as the rest of the auditorium applauded Affleck after he bagged the prize for his role in Manchester By the Sea. It was especially pointed as Larson had won the Oscar for Best Actress the year before, for her moving portrayal of a long-term sexual abuse victim in the acclaimed film Room.

Kong: Skull Island Trailer


It's the 1970s and Captain James Conrad and Lieutenant Colonel Packard are leading a group of soldiers and explorers to a seemingly idyllic unmapped location in the Pacific.

Unfortunately, their journey requires some serious collateral damage, as they are forced to bomb the island and unwittingly incite the treacherous ire of Kong, the King of Skull Island. He crushes them - literally. That's what happens when you bomb the habitat of a giant ape. But soon they realise that Kong isn't the only outsize creature they have to fear, because the island is home to a group of demonic monsters as well, some that resemble spiders and others that resemble reptiles. Their only hope is to enlist the help of the island's inhabitants, tribal men and women who worship the great Kong but disapprove of the Americans' willingness to attack their home.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ('The Kings of Summer'), 'Kong: Skull Island' is a re-imagining of the King Kong story, following him to his home on Skull Island where he first originated. The screenplay was written by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein, and filming spanned locations the likes of Hawaii, Australia's Gold Coast and Vietnam. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly, the film is scheduled to be released on March 10th 2017.

Kong: Skull Island Trailer


James Conrad is a British captain who leads an international envoy to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to charter some of Earth's most distant and mysterious lands. The captain is accompanied by a number of other members on the team including Randa, a government official who appears to know a few of the islands mysteries; a female photojournalist called Weaver who is known for her war photography; US Lieutenant Colonel Packard who is in charge of the UK troops who are also part of the mission.

As the vessel approaches the island, spirits are high and the team are ready to take choppers to the green land known as Skull Island. Soon their mission becomes disastrous as the inhabitants are far more feral than they could ever imagine. Equipped with guns, Ammunition and rocket launchers, the humans feel that they're able to overcome whatever may await them on the island but the truth is that they could never come face to face and beat the beast that awaits them.

Kong: Skull Island is the latest reboot of the King Kong story and it focusses on the start of the story originally told in 1933.

Brie Larson To Play Captain Marvel In 2018 Movie?


Brie Larson

Captain Marvel is coming! And guess who's the frontrunner to portray this all powerful hero: Brie Larson. In probably one of the greatest casting choices ever made in a comic book film franchise. It's worth noting that we're talking Marvel's Captain Marvel not DC's, though that's not a bad idea either.

The 'Room' actress may be getting the role of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in Marvel's first ever stand-alone heroine movie, competing against DC's 'Wonder Woman' starring Gal Gadot. According to Variety, she is the first choice for the role and, apparently, she's interested.

Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Gets His Oscar! But 'Mad Max' Was The Big Winner At The 2016 Academy Awards


Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Leonardo Dicaprio Brie Larson Alicia Vikander

It would no doubt have been a total travesty if Leonardo Dicaprio didn't win his long-awaited Academy Award for his role in 'The Revenant', but no doubt his very first Oscars victory is a huge cause for celebration. The movie won a further two accolades, but didn't come close to 'Mad Max: Fury Road''s success of no less than six prizes.

So DiCaprio finally has a Best Actor Academy Award to add to his collection, while 'The Revenant' director Alejandro G. Iñárritu wins for the second year in a row. The movie, which explores the vengeful quest of 19th century explorer Hugh Glass after he was abandoned during a bear attack, also scooped the award for Best Cinematography, but it was beaten to Best Picture by 'Spotlight'; a drama about The Boston Globe's investigation of child abuse in the Catholic church. 'Spotlight' screenwriters Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy also took home Best Original Screenplay, whilst Best Adapted Screenplay went to Charles Randolph and Adam McKay for 'The Big Short'.

Room Was Like A Dream For Brie Larson


Brie Larson

Critical attention grew with her breakout performance in the 2013 film Short Term 12. And this week the 26-year-old earned an Oscar nomination for her work in Room. "It seems so far removed from my reality," she says of being an Oscar contender. "Even talking about it feels like planning your dream wedding when you don't have a boyfriend: there's just no point! I'm so thrilled that the movie is resonating, and that is honestly all I could ever have hoped for."

Brie Larson plays the lead role in the filmBrie Larson plays the lead role in the film

Many have commented that her sensitive acting lifts what is an otherwise harrowing movie. But she has a problem with that description. "Unless 'harrowing' means 'lovely', I don't understand it," she laughs. "I feel like it gives this weird downer tone to the movie. You can watch the movie and focus on the kidnapping and the crime story, or you can see it as a story of love and freedom and perseverance and what it feels like to grow up and become your own person. That's more of what I see in it."

Room Review

Essential

One of the most extraordinary films of the year, this drama cleverly weaves in events from the news headlines to tell a raw, deeply involving story that's unnervingly personal. Irish director Lenny Abrahamson and writer Emma Donoghue bring these events to life with uncanny skill, using a young child's perspective to give it an extra-strong kick. And Brie Larson's central performance is so powerful that she's become the one to beat on Oscar night.

She plays Joy, a young woman who was abducted at 17 by a man she only knows as Old Nick (Sean Bridgers). The story opens as her son Jack (Jacob Tremblay) celebrates his fifth birthday in the single room where he was born and has spent his entire life. There isn't even a window to look out of so, to help him cope, Joy explains that there is no life outside the room, and everything they see on television is fake. She also gets Jack to hide whenever Nick visits, so they can't develop any kind of relationship. But as he grows up, Jack's curiosity demands more answers, and Joy finally decides to tell him the truth in the hope that he can help them escape.

Its halfway into the film when Jack's world is suddenly opened up around him in a rescue sequence that's exhilarating, terrifying and literally breathtaking. And from here, the film gets even more punchy, as Joy and Jack struggle to adapt to life in what seems like an alien landscape. Joy's parents (the great Joan Allen and William H. Macy) have split up, and her mother has a new partner (Tom McCamus), and their reunion is watched closely by the media, police and psychologists. All of this is seen through Jack's curious, observant eyes. Everyone is worried about him, but he perceptively notices that his mother is having even more trouble coping than he is.

Cool Thing Of The Week: Jenny Lewis' "Just One Of The Guys" Video, Featuring Anne Hathaway


Jenny Lewis Anne Hathaway Kristen Stewart Brie Larson

Jenny Lewis’ new music video might be the best thing on the internet this week. Not only is the song, Lewis’ new single Just One of the Guys all about gender roles and why they’re awful, but the video features kickass ladies Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson, rocking out and – at some points – dressing up like dudes. It looks like it was fun to film. The former Rilo Kiley confirmed as much in a recent interview with GQ, where she promoted her upcoming album, Voyager.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Review


OK
So uber-hip that young audiences will adore it, this hyperactive film can't decide whether it's a comic book or a videogame. Sure, it's visually whizzy and often very funny, but filmmaker Wright loses the story in the scuffle.

In Toronto, Scott (Cera) is a 22-year-old geek in a rock band. His bandmates (Webber, Pill and Simmons), sister (Kendrick) and flatmate (Culkin) tease him for dating a teenager (Wong), but she's the band's biggest fan. Then he meets Ramona (Winstead), who is literally his dream girl, and to win her hand he has to defeat her seven evil exes in outlandish battles. These include an action movie star (Evans) and a top music promoter (Schwartzman). And one (Routh) is member of a band fronted by Scott's own evil ex (Larson).

Greenberg Review


OK
There's a terrific character profile buried within this meandering, awkward film. The actors create superbly rounded people, but the slow pace and seemingly aimless script make it rather maddening to watch.

While her boss Phil Greenberg (Messina) and family are on holiday, Florence (Gerwig) is taking care of their home and dog. And she also ends up taking care of his brother Roger (Stiller) when he comes to stay in the house. Roger is obsessive-compulsive and not very good at relationships. He gets in touch with his old pal (Ifans) and his newly single ex (Leigh), but is unable to avoid falling for Florence along the way. This doesn't go too well at all, mainly because Roger can't think through anything clearly.

Hoot Review


Good

Mystery novelist and Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen aimed his book Hoot at young adults, so it's fitting that the movie version ends up filling the widening generational gap at the cinemas. Adapted by television director Wil Shriner, this topical tale provides mildly suspenseful and mostly rewarding entertainment the whole family can enjoy.

Everything about Hoot feels relaxed, from the leisurely pace of the central mystery to the laid-back soundtrack of Jimmy Buffet tunes - the singer acts as executive producer and even takes a break from touring the globe to play a high school science teacher.

Sleepover Review


Weak

The 'tweenybopper moviegoer is unlikely to be savvy to the rote, one-dimensional nature of clichés like catty in-crowd queen bees, cardboard cut-out dream boys admired from a distance, and underdog cliques of pretty, outcast Everygirls -- but that's no excuse for building a whole picture around such threadbare characters and the inevitable plots that go with them.

Yet that's exactly what happens in "Sleepover," the latest example of how Hollywood can strip a halfway decent idea of any originality by saddling it with tedious stereotypes and the false hope of easy, prepackaged solutions for young girls' adolescent problems.

It's a comedy in which four "average" junior high girls (Alexa Vega, Mika Boorem, Scout Taylor-Compton and Kallie Flynn Childress), typically nervous about being accepted, are challenged by four shallow, cruel, fashionista cheerleader types (Sara Paxton and three indistinguishable minions) to a one-night, sneak-out-of-the-house scavenger hunt. The winners get to eat lunch at the "cool" table when they go on to high school next year.
